The filename extension ".sb" is now officially used to identify the SeaBASS file format. Read more. Data submitters, please use ".sb" when creating future file names (instead of .csv, .txt, etc.) Data users should note that a large percentage of historical files have had their names updated to the new standard. Other than the metadata "/data_file_name" being updated, the contents and format are otherwise unchanged.
A new Data Submission Special Requirements page has been launched. It has requirements and examples for various types of data. When preparing a new submission, check to see if your data type is listed on that page. If so, review the conditionally required metadata, and optionally read tips or examples for formatting your files.
Importantly, some submissions must now include a checklist document listed under required extra documents. Checklists forms were designed to standardize and better preserve critical methods and analysis details that are part of community vetted protocols.
SeaBASS SST Validation results are being reprocessed to R2019.0 (Aqua- & Terra-MODIS) and R2016.2 (SNPP-VIIRS). Over the coming weeks the results files will be in flux, and might be updated multiple times. The old match-ups are available here.
